The 1970s created a perfect musical bridge from the rebelliousness of the 1960s and the happy songs that are characteristic of the 1980s. Following the counterculture of the 60s, the and the 70s created a trend of relaxing music as well as dance music. People may have grown tired of the fighting that happened the previous decade and many of them sought a refuge in dance clubs and other places to enjoy a good time. Out of this idea emerged the Disco movement. Of course, there were still the bands and artists that continued to speak of the ills of society, typically characterized by the punk music in the latter part of the decade. Although the rebellious idea had died down shortly following Woodstock in 1969, there were still many people that disagreed with the establishment and the way the country was being run. Most people, though, were just looking for another way to vent their frustrations, which helped to give rise to the fun that disco music provided. The 1970’s was not a unique decade in terms of creating innovations in musical styles and genres, but it was unique in that it was a musical bridge connecting the hippie lifestyle of the 1960s with the characteristic yuppie lifestyle that was about to occur in the 1980s.

The 1980s saw the emergence of dance music and new wave. As disco fell out of fashion in the decade’s early years, genres such as post-discoItalo discoEuro disco and dance-popbecame more popular. Rock music continued to enjoy a wide audience. Soft rockglam metalthrash metalshred guitar characterized by heavy distortion, pinch harmonics and whammy bar abuse became very popular. Adult contemporaryquiet storm, and smooth jazz gained popularity. In the late 1980s, glam metal became the largest, most commercially successful brand of music in the United States and worldwide.[

The 1980s are commonly remembered for an increase in the use of digital recording, associated with the usage of synthesizers, with synth-pop music and other electronic genres featuring non-traditional instruments increasing in popularity. Also during this decade, several major electronic genres were developed, including electrotechnohousefreestyle and Eurodance, rising in prominence during the 1990s and beyond. Throughout the decade, R&Bhip hop and urban genres were becoming commonplace, particularly in the inner-city areas of large, metropolitan cities; rap was especially successful in the latter part of the decade,[ with the advent of the golden age of hip hop. These urban genres—particularly rap and hip hop—would continue their rise in popularity through the 1990s and 2000s.

G’day – this is another ultra simple recipe idea. It’s a stuffed half red capsicum or red pepper as some call them.

First, one needs a red capsicum to cut in half (we’ll be using the bottom half after we’ve taken out any of the core and pips which may not have remained in the stalk end of the fruit – yes, it’s a fruit.). And you’ll need a small handful of baby spinach leaves (you can buy packets of them already washed if you don’t grow your own.) A small sprinkle of garlic salt and a sweet potato.

In the hot summer months you may not want to heat the half-capsicum pocket, shell, pouch or whatever we call it, but for this exercise I am.

So cut off the two pointy ends of the sweet potato – we will use these in the first place to place in each of the halves of capsicum to help keep the shape of the capsicum, and also cook them in the halves as they heat in the microwave oven. That takes next to no time.

Now take the heated halves out of the microwave oven, remove the sweet potato ends, mash them with a fork adding a little butter and a sprinkle of garlic salt, plus a heaped spoon of canned tuna in olive oil. Roughly chop some spinach which is then put in the capsicum. Top that with sweet potato and tuna. Sprinkle some shaved Parmesan cheese on top of the lot and serve each capsicum half as a substantial entree.

Easy, eh? And good for you too.

PS. I have no affiliation with Sirena canned tuna in olive oil – I just think it’s good-o.
